Service Organizations

Circle K

The purpose of this club is to unite students across the Behrend campus while reaching out into the Erie community and making a difference. This is a nationally recognized organization that fosters the principles of developing leadership skills, community service, and friendship.


Gamma Sigma Sigma

Gamma Sigma Sigma is a service sorority developed in the spirit of service to humanity and to develop friendships among students. This chapter does many community service and philanthropy events both on campus and in the community. It is a unique sorority that allows the students to choose to join the sorority without a selective member process.


Lambda Sigma Society

Lambda Sigma Society is a national honor society for second year men and women dedicated to the purpose of fostering leadership, scholarship, fellowship, and the spirit of service among college students, and to promoting the interests of the college or university in every possible way.

Membership in Lambda Sigma is not only recognition for accomplishment, but also a challenge to serve throughout your college career and as an alumnus. Lambda Sigma offers opportunities for personal growth, leadership experience, a sense of involvement on your campus, and the friendship of other student leaders/scholars. As a member of a group of outstanding second year students, you will be challenged to fulfill your own intellectual and leadership potential while serving your college/university and your community.

So, if you want to grow as a leader, serve your campus and community, develop friendships with other academic-minded second-year students, and be eligible for one of our $500 scholarships, then Lambda Sigma is for you. But remember, you have only one window of opportunity to be a part of this dynamic organization—that’s during your second year on campus. So, come grow and serve with students from around the country, and make your campus experience one that will change your life.
